- When a man ejaculates.
- the climactic scene of most hardcore porn movies, most often as a facial cumshot or similar.
The male ejaculation is shown to prove the male orgasm. As in real life, when the man comes, the act is over (girls may argue this point, but that is pretty much how must people do it). As a result, the male cumshot is used not only to prove that the orgasm happened, but also as a termination point of the scene and to give completition. When porn movies are shown on cable, they usually do not show the money shot, which can leave you very confused and off kilter. We are so use to seeing the cumshot as the end of the scene, that it is very disappointing and confusing not to see the guy cum.
